My thought is that the wicked get out of LoF at Tabernacles. They get harvested.I figured out Jesus was born on: Yom Kippur = Day of atonement
That's a total of 186 days - 6 months
It makes extra sense when you consider (almost) all things of any significance happend on a holiday.
Birth, start of ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus was on a holyday.
Considering that getting everyone into heaven was the big aim of God why not on a holyday....?
Martin figured out Jesus was born on: Feast of Tabernacles
So I started to look for a little extra proof.
Yom Kippur is 8 days after the Jewish new year.
8 days after the start of the 8 day festival Tabernacles is Simchat.
My own little theory tells me each feast only happens once in the big masterplan. So it can't be Tabernacles. 100% guesswork. I fully admit that.
Anyway both versions are only a few days apart. About nine month before birth is getting pregnant. Counting back and we get..... suprise....another feast. Hanukkah - Festival of Lights. (8 days later Simchat)
Again a nice match! (btw such things draw me closer to believing)
A bit problematic is that the Jews are real party animals and that month is almost a string of festivals.
Jesus is many things including light of the world. Hanukkah is a 7 day festival. Each day a extra candle is lit. Jesus is born on the day of the first candle. (makes me think of the candles in Revelation)
So lets fix this date as a starting point for the 9 months.
Then we immediately bump into a little problem. How long does the perfect pregnancy exactly last? I think 40 weeks. 280 days. I guess the 28 rings a bell for women and moon watchers :-)
Lets see what fits.
I use Excel to calculate dates. But it doesn't accept BC years. So calculations can be off 1 day due to a leap year.
Pregnant December 6th 6BC -> Festival of lights
September 12th 5BC -> 1 day after Yom Kippur or 5 days before Tabernacle.
So Yom Kippur seems the closest match.
BTW: 70 weeks of Daniel and start of His ministry also are on Yom Kippur.
You came to the same conclusion as the late Ernest L. Martin, PhD (ASK). He also believed Christ's birth was on Yom Kippur; Sept. 11th!
God does not instruct us to pray to change His mind. He wants us to pray so that we'll know His mind.

God never had or needed a Plan B. He's still on Plan A.
